Product information[edit]

The sweets have six natural fruit flavours: blackcurrant, cherry, strawberry, orange, lime and lemon and four different textures: regular jelly, foam-backed jelly, foamy sweet and liquid-filled foam-backed jelly. The sweets are given the appearance of everyday objects, including ice cream cones, snowflakes, pigs, roller-blades, saxophones, sports cars, musical notes, paint brushes, bicycles, bow ties, ping pong paddles, flowers, puzzle pieces, buses and palm trees, hence the name Rowntrees "Randoms". In February 2012, a competition was launched to find a pack that has all red sweets in, with the lucky winner getting £10,000.[citation needed]

In 2013, a new variant was released, named "Squidgey Speak".

In 2014, a second variant was released, named "Sweet 'n' Sour".
